This year marks the first time in 80 years that the Ryder Cup has come to Chicago, and in commemoration of that milestone, Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana (RMHC® -CNI) and the Illinois PGA Foundation have partnered to create Magnificent Moments, a campaign to raise funds for their respective charities while providing lasting memories for visitors to the Windy City.
As the official spirit of Magnificent Moments, Grey Goose® Vodka is proud to support the work of these two fine charitable organizations while continuing its time-honored tradition of celebrating the “World’s Best,” from sports, music and film to arts and philanthropy.
You are cordially invited to two very special Magnificent Moments events leading up to the Ryder Cup—Tartan Art on the Avenue and the Bagpipes & Blues Pep Rally—both of which will enable you to make your own contribution to a worthwhile cause.
You won’t be able to miss the Tartan Art on the Avenue public exhibit, featuring five-foot golf balls all along the Magnificent Mile and throughout the city. Painted by famed artist LeRoy Neiman and other notable figures, the giant golf balls will be sold to benefit RMHC® -CNI and the Illinois PGA Foundation.
The Bagpipes & Blues Pep Rally Sept. 27 at the Field Museum will be one of the weekend’s highlights, with live music, celebrity guests and a view of Chicago’s waterfront. Just by purchasing a ticket, you will make a valuable contribution. Tickets are available at rmhccni.org/magnificentmoments.
Please join our toast to charity and world-class golf by lifting a cocktail at participating venues throughout the city. You can find information on all of them and more in the sponsored Time Out Chicago “Your Perfect Cup” guide. We hope you enjoy the specialty Perfect Cup cocktails for Ryder Cup week listed within this guide and our curated selection of exciting things to do and places to visit in the Chicago area.
